The IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Socket Java Probe can be configured to work in either Client mode or Server mode. In Server mode, the probe is a multiheaded probe that acts as a single process concurrent server; the probe can handle a limited number of multiple connections to it through a TCP port. In Client mode, the probe connects to a socket to which a device writes its events.
